Fun place, diversified and everyone is ready to help. There are a lot of fun activities that happen throughout the year. The workforce is pretty big in each department and therefore people come together and help each other to deliver the product with good quality.

The organisation exercises work-life-balance and scrum-based development very well. People are diversified but everyone has high respect towards differences in culture.

It is a slower-paced more relaxed job and as such, I would recommend it if you do not want a lot of stress from your job while still getting something done.

"Nokia Way" posters lining the hallways show 20-somethings. But Ottawa location has many lifers (20+ years). Many groups are geographically dispersed. Some groups are high on process others have nearly none (not even simple code reviews).

It was a great experience working with Nokia as a Coop. The team was very helpful which motivated me to work hard and learn new things every day. The work was challenging and fun.

It is very casual work environment in terms of dressing and the company allows employees working from home once per week, or when weather forecast predicts bad driving situation the managers encourage us to work from home.

This department was of a different culture from the rest of the company. It was a stressful, school yard bulling environment. Very strange department to work in.

There is a huge divide between being an employee for Nokia and being a contractor in the same position. No new contractors ever become employees and everyone's understanding is it will never happen. So some of your peers will be paid better, have benefits, vacation, sick days, etc and others will have absolutely nothing. It does not take long before this wears on the contractors and everyone who is not an employee completely considers it a temporary gig while looking for something better.

Fast paced work environment , self accountability and drive required
Most enjoyable part of the job are the successes after the hard work.

Hardest part of the job is the ever changing landscape of the business.

I have worked as a Consultant on 5G roll-out projects in different cities of mid-west and north eastern states of United States. During my work with NOKIA, I mainly enjoyed and learned many new things.

However, I observed there is big room of process improvement and project management areas, which sometimes lack on projects and cause delay and financial lost.

Cons: Terrible pay and always lateral moves even if you get a promotion. Management doesn’t care about your career at all.

Pros: Good vacation and can work from

Home.

Located in the biggest tech hub in Canada, Nokia Canada provides an excellent environment to learn and grow. The office in Ottawa is an R&D hub where cutting edge telecommunication technologies are developed.

The company provides excellent growth and learning opportunities. The people are great, knowledgeable and helpful. One of the best work life balances around.


The office has a gym, basketball court, volleyball court, an awesome cafeteria, in-house Tim Hortons, and great coffee lounges on every floor.

I learned a lot at Nokia. However, the company doesn't value it employees that much. Employees are considered just a part of the machinery. Nokia doesn't care much about its customers. Quality of work is not that important for this company (as compared to the volume of work thus resulting in more revenue).
